First Aid

Have you ever been hurt in the mountains or been there when one of your friends were? If it was in a ski resort then you likely only had to wait a few minutes before a ski patroller came to the rescue or in the case of it being a more serious injury, called in the cavalry in the form of toboggan or even a helicopter to get your broken self to emergency medical care.

Mountain Skills Academy offers the following first aid courses that follow curriculum set by Sirius Wilderness Medicine.
